Arrivals

.

The arrival of returning waders signals the end of our long warm summer days. Gathering on the coastal marshes are Black tailed Godwits; some still resplendent in their breeding dress.

As we waited yesterday for birds to come closer the light was failing and clouds gathering to the west; a storm was on its way. A Sparrowhawk took the opportunity to hunt the scrape before the rain arrived and the Godwits detonated into the air.
